validation for a non active record input field

not even a single person implemented non-active record field
validation?...please help

Hi there,

I've never done something like that but I can imagine you could do the
validation in your controller. When the action is invoked you can
check the values received in the params hash and act accordingly.



What you should have is a new model (e.g. AdReply), so that that form
points to AdRepliesController#create, which then attempts to create
the model, and redirects wherever you need to if successful/failed.
All the validations are then on that model and are independent of your
